One of my favorite colors, hands down, is purple, weather it comes in eggplant, aubergine, lilac, lavender, violet, or plum I love the rich moodiness of the color. One of my client’s had me on the hunt for purple and I found a treasure trove of fabrics, wallpapers, and paint colors I would love to use in the near future. I look towards nature and the majority of my favorite flowers are purple:
And lavender…. rows and rows of lavender!

Pierre Bonnard loved purple and paired it with all colors. I use ome of his paintings as jumping off points for clients:
Above: a favorite combination, lavender, plum, and pale yellow
Above: I would take the pale lavender, bright cantaloupe, and the sea foam for a sunny palate in Florida
The painting above with the lavender and bright red in the tablecloth has such warmth
Above: I would take the lavender, warm bright yellow, ivory, and deep forrest green
